How institutions and companies are acting and reporting on these actions plays an important part to achieve sustainability. That is why we are organising the first ECA Sustainability Reporting Forum to review reporting and how the auditor can support transparency and trust in the information provided. Eva Lindström will set the scene and draw observations on the new ECA review.
The publication of the audited financial statements remains the main source of assurance on the organisation's long-term sustainability. But, how do organisations demonstrate sustainability reporting in the financial statements? We will look at the current state of sustainability reporting in the private and public sectors respectively and will use the first session to discuss what lessons can be learned.
We will continue with the question: What sustainability information do stakeholders need?
